Dear colleagues,
could anybody indicate some photo or observation with Tephritid as a prey of predatory Arthropoda (fly, spider or whatever)?
If not, is there any data that Tephritid are toxic?

A Tephritid as prey of a spider is not unusual, I think. I have seen it more then once.

As mathematicians says: a counterexample is the best evidence!

Ben did not give species name, could I ask our community?
